Harambee Stars Captain Victor Wanyama has partnered with the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) to help Kenyan’s living in informal settlements.

The former Tottenham Hotspurs midfielder agreed earlier this year to work with UN-Habitat in supporting community development, especially women and youth from poor backgrounds.

“Excited to team up with @UNHABITAT to improve the living conditions of the youth in the cities and informal settlements in Kenya and also able to assist towards UN-Habitatโ€™s COVID-19 Mitigation efforts in the informal settlements,” Wanyama said.

As the UN-Habitat Goodwill Ambassador, the 28-year-old has contributed $10,000 (KSh1.09 million) towards the agency’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts in Kenyaโ€™s informal settlements.

Wanyama, popularly known as the Lion of Muthurwa, established the ‘Victor Wanyama Foundation’ in September 2019. The foundation aims at advancing life skills and promoting sporting activities in the society.

Through the foundation, Wanyama has been doing charity work in slums and supporting needy students.

He is currently constructing a multi-million sports academy complex in Nambale, Busia County.
